Any inputs on trading news releases using currency futures as instrument ? I,ve read in one of the searches, that account funds are secured against bankrupcy of the firm, is that correct with all firms US based or otherwise ? Do you experience widening spread & slippage during high volatility ? My forex trading with a MM (OANDA) has been a good expirience. But, as i'm becoming profitable & my trading style is closer to scalping i think it wise to look for alternatives. Any suggestions on brokers etc ? Thank you in advance.
